SL vs IND series schedule is finally out and Team India will be playing 3 ODIs and as many T20I against hosts Sri Lanka starting with the 50-over matches from 13 July. The visiting India team has already announced their squad for the Lanka tour but the home team is yet to announce their squad. All the ODIs as well as T20Is will be played at the R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.
With Team India’s star players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma busy with the Test team in England for a long summer, Shikhar Dhawan is very much likely to be appointed as the stand-in captain for the Sri Lanka series. On the other hand, NCA head Rahul Dravid will travel with the national team as the head coach to Sri Lanka.
